Faith Williams was homeless and living out of her car for months. She felt hopeless and helpless because no one seemed to want to help or lend a hand. Faith was working simply to keep her car on the road to get back and forth from work.

After months of homelessness, she found out about Avalon housing. Avalon housing was able to provide her with affordable, subsidized housing but did not provide her with furniture. Her Case worker, Greg, referred her to Friends In Deed. Faith was able to get a dresser, dining table, bookcase and chairs for her new home. She came in to pick up her furniture and was amazed at the options she had to choose from.

When asked about some of the challenges she faced, Faith said that overcoming homelessness was a tough battle but she is blessed and thankful for organizations like Friends In Deed that help people in their times of need. “If I were able, I would not think twice about donating to Friends In Deed.”
